I’m currently doing the 32 week off season plan. I started way back in November of 2020 but I got covid in January and took off about 3 months to fully recover. Since I really didn’t have an A race planned, I started back with sweet spot 1 based on Lacey’s recommendation and just started sweet spot 2 in the plan yesterday. I’m doing the advanced level, so lots of time in saddle.
My question is, I have a 3 hour xc mountain bike race this Saturday and am curious what I should be doing this week for workouts. Should I continue on with my sweet spot rides and make the Saturday race my “group ride?” The plan calls for a 2 hour endurance ride on Thursday ~ 55 tss, so I’m thinking just roll with the plan and I should be fine by Saturday, as long as I follow the food plan this week.
Or should I adjust what I’m doing this week to ensure I’m not too tired to race Saturday?
Also, Friday is my day off in the plan but I’ll be at the race venue setting up my camper and will most likely preride the 9 mile course at a very light level so I don’t kill my legs for Saturday.
Thanks for any assistance.
